Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />
*** please message me via TES community if you have any questions regarding technical settings***
With the New Curriculum in force and Levels gone I have taken it upon myself to create a new assessment grid for Science. It works the same way as an APP grid. It also includes the Working Scientifically criteria. Like the New Curriculum, each assessment grid has been grouped into age ranges, KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2. Rather than Levels, which I know OFSTED are dead against, I have gone with 'Stages' which admittedly is essentially the same thing as Levels, but by a different name, Having tested these myself I know that these grids are handy assessment tools, with simple highlighting needed, with dates, to show how well each child has done.
Engaging, fun and challenging complete lesson that teaches and rehearses demarcating sentences with question marks, exclamation marks and full stops. Children learn about each punctuation mark and the importance of adding punctuation at the end of sentences, identifying which punctuation to use. They then work through 4 activities designed to develop their understanding using different skills. They identify, create and explain, with the more able going on to a challenging extension activity. There is also a fun activity in there too that your class will love. Self/peer-assessment plenary is also included to really help cement the learning in their minds and potentially make marking easier for you too. Aimed at KS1, but can be used for KS2 and SEN or EAL children. Teachers' notes and answers included.
A creative music project for Key Stage 2, to run alongside any classroom geography project about volcanoes or earthquakes. <br /><br />
This resource consists of:<br /><br />
* a medium term planning overview<br />
* 4 easy-to-follow weekly music lesson plans<br />
* a pupil composition planning sheet<br />
* a teacher's informal assessment/observation form<br /><br />
Musical instruments required are standard school percussion instruments (tuned and untuned), although electronic instruments (eg. keyboards) and children's own instruments (e.g. guitars, violins, recorders etc.) can easily and successfully be integrated into this project.<br /><br />
Some of the other resources mentioned are youtube videos, best displayed on a Smartboard (please check with your school whether you are allowed to access youtube). <br /><br />
A digital audio recorder or video recorder (or mobile phone with those facilities!) is also required to record the final compositions.
A complete, engaging, imaginative, creative writing or Big Writing stimuli lesson that can be applied to many different writing genres. <br />
Children view PowerPoint then discuss ideas and plan by answering the thought provoking questions which enable a wealth of ideas to be generated for the writing. Planning sheet has space for 5 sense descriptions, VCOP elements and purpose, audience and genre notes to help meet the new 2014 curriculum. Starter activity plus 2 widths of line guides/writing sheets included plus optional paragraph planning sheet, custom art sheet and self-assessment plenary activity mean that this lesson's length is flexible and could easily last for 2 hours if you wanted it to and comes with 3 different options in the teachers' notes for delivery over 1,2 or 3 lessons. Lesson is aimed at KS2 but can be used for more able KS1, or KS3 as it is differentiated by outcome. <br />
Children will need some historical knowledge of the era.

Part of a full series on Ancient Greeks available either separately or as a full pack at a reduced cost.<br />
I have been teaching over twenty years and have been an adviser and leader of teaching and learning in a school. I have been consistently judged as outstanding. I am still teaching and enjoy spending the time on thinking of ways to engage my class and to love their learning, producing high quality work.<br />
I have tried all the lessons myself and used them in my own recent teaching.
Using stages rather than levels, this is a reference sheet for each year group from 1 to 6 (with each stage being in line with year group expectations). Statements are taken directly from the 2014 Curriculum, split across the stages, with the added bonus of possible examples for each statement. I ran the original version of this in school and found variation among teacher assessments, hence the new addition of examples to support consistency and progress across the school.
